#Funding & Founding
Briefly, I'm an award-winning geek with substantial experience in the online industry in general and the e-commerce domain in particular.
I founded my first startup at 16 years of age and have since started over dozens of different companies. Since the late nineties, being in an entrepreneurial environment and developing successful businesses have been two of my greatest passions. I focus on meaningful entrepreneurship by supporting entrepreneurs to explore and develop sustainable and impactful businesses.
In the last decade, I have held several executive positions and advisory roles in global enterprises. I'm also a frequent speaker at some of Europe's largest e-business conferences.
While living in the Silicon Valley of California, Beckman's doctrine is inspiring and engaging in a great deal of difference between American and Finnish entrepreneurship. She has been a speaker at many major business events in more than 10 countries and has reaped the reputation of being an inspirational idea lover and professional advisor.
At present, Paavo is the CEO of Startup Catapult International, where his work image includes the search for growth companies and various innovative solutions for the development needs of large listed companies. Agreeing with the job, his passion and greatest interest are the changes and solutions brought by digitalization and new technologies to the processes of different industries.
The challenges facing businesses and their responses are the backbone of Beckman's inspiring speeches.
In Paavo, the passion for learning, development and change becomes concrete. As a founder of six companies, she has a lot of experience with success, but she particularly emphasizes the importance of failures on the road to success. His performances include practical examples of success stories, failures, methods of developing knowledge and business, and examples of factors that slow down success.
